  • Stepless variator with a pull chain.
  • Designed for vehicles with longitudinally positioned gasoline engines with a volume of 1.8 to 3.2 liters.
  • Creates a torque of up to 400 Nm. Corresponds to an 8-speed gearbox.
  • This number of gears provides the so-called «sports mode» of driving. In this case, the load is not the entire surface of the pulleys, but only the central part of them. The transmission of torque becomes intermittent. «Sports» riding significantly reduces the resource of the mechanism. During the normal driving mode, the surfaces of the pulleys are fully engaged.
